Because I'm not entirely sure.
I jumped back into some player matches last night and after getting roundly whipped by a few dudes (including a mean, mean Dhalsim), I got to playing against this dude who favoured Ryu.
Anyway, I stuck with Fei Long and he beat me pretty convincingly in the first four matches. After which he hit that READY button in the lobby quick as lightning.
Match five, I turned it around a bit and managed to pull out some EX Rekka-Kens and a couple of supers and take him down. Which felt great since it was the first player match I'd ever won.
Into match six and I felt I had a pretty good rhythm going. I hit him with a few good flame kicks and threw a couple of times and eventually won the third round. But immediately after the big KO came on screen, but before Ryu hit the ground, I got a message saying CONNECTION LOST.
Now my question is this: Did he quit on me? I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt but it seemed a bit too convenient for a connection to be lost right at that particular moment.
